Emma Watson graduated with a BA in English literature from Brown University today. Here’s more on her academic journey from E!:
The 24-year-old actress began her freshman year at the Ivy League school in 2009, and also studied at England’s Oxford University and continued to make movies while pursuing her degree. She took a year off in 2011, but graduating in five years these days is pretty typical, even for non-movie stars.
… Really? That’s news to me.
[...] Watson’s prominent role in the Potter franchise made it difficult for her to go unnoticed. “I was in denial,” she said in a 2011 interview. “I wanted to pretend I wasn’t as famous as I was. I was trying to seek out normality, but I kind of have to accept who I am, the position I’m in and what happened.”
Over time, her fears dissipated. “I’ve never even been asked for an autograph on campus,” the star said. “I threw a party for nearly 100 students and not a single person put a photo on Facebook.”
Girl, they put them all on Instagram instead, duh.
No but seriously, congrats to Emma for her wizardly feat in managing to graduate with her schedule.
Use this post to reminisce about college, if you like. I miss college so bad sometimes.
